Latest from Aiden Jackson
Listening to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reverential description of impeachment on Wednesday, evidently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “prayerful” demeanor is rubbing off on her fellow Democrats. Swept up in the excitement of the House preparing to vote to impeach President Trump, the Hardball host labeled the partisan process “sacramental.”
Everyone should find a person that looks at them the way Stephen Colbert looks at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. On Thursday’s Late Show, Colbert did everything short of throwing rose petals at Pelosi’s feet as he opened his show with a fawning video tribute to his idol.
Hollywood, a town known for many things, not among them being intellectual diversity. A communications arm of the Democratic Party for decades, it is nearly impossible to turn on the television or go to a cinema without being bombarded by leftist talking points. However, Trevor Noah seemed to suggest otherwise on Thursday’s The Daily Show with guest John Lithgow.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has learned first-hand that albeit unusual, even members of her leftist cohort, aka late-night hosts, are capable of asking tough questions when it pertains to Medicare for All. The latest to do just that was Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s Tonight Show.
High crimes and misdemeanors what? If you thought MSNBC hosts were severely lacking in their constitutional knowledge before, you have not heard Ari Melber’s latest commentary. During Wednesday’s MSNBC impeachment special coverage, Melber tried to change the standards for impeachment by claiming that no crime is needed for the President to be removed from office.
As of late, The New York Times has cemented itself as the CNN of the newspaper world with a leftist trajectory and near total loss of journalistic integrity. On Monday’s Fox & Friends to discuss this travesty of modern day investigative reporting was former New York Times contributor and current New York Post reporter, Michael Goodwin.
Careful Colbert, your impeachment excitement is showing again. Many are aware of Senator Kamala Harris’ controversial legal track record from her tenure as California’s Attorney General. However, Colbert acted as though he had yet to receive this memo as he requested Harris’ prosecutorial input into the impeachment inquiry on Thursday’s The Late Show.
Womp. Womp. Chris Cuomo has a law degree, right? What’s that rule about not asking questions you don’t know the answer to? The award for CNN’s most cringe worthy moment (as of all day Wednesday) goes to none other Cuomo after he tried to prove the case against Donald Trump.
They're two of a kind! Tuesday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers proved to be more reminiscent of an Al Gore fundraising event than an entertaining television program as the two men yukked it up over climate change and President Trump.
Due process has become a thing of the past in the minds of the liberal media. Fake news anchor Michael Che underlined this during the Weekend Update segment on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live.
In life, when faced with a threat, the instinctual response is to fight against it. To the leftist media, there is no greater threat than Fox News, which would explain their constant attacks towards it. Trevor Noah was the latest to unleash on an anti-Fox tirade during Thursday’s Daily Show.
It would appear the media war on Christmas is far from over. As Stephen Colbert exemplified on Tuesday’s The Late Show, no event in American life, not even a holiday, is immune from political infusion. Colbert had no qualms in letting the audience know of his excitement for Wednesday’s Impeachment hearings, considering his fan base shares in the anticipation alongside of him.
In the world of the corrupt liberal media, there are seldom conspiracies from within that come as a surprise to the public. However, the latest news regarding ABC’s involvement in burying the Epstein story was enough to shock even the most seasoned media experts. Fox’s Jesse Watters highlighted the cover-up on Saturday’s Watters’ World.
All Americans love when millionaire television hosts preach forced wealth redistribution from their ivory towers, right? This is the latest liberal cause late night host Stephen Colbert advocated for on Thursday’s Late Show, during an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson.
Leftist indoctrination begins younger and younger now- a- days. At least, that seems to be the goal of liberal late-night host, Jimmy Kimmel, who aired a fake Lego commercial on Thursday that depicted President Trump as a criminal. As a foreshadowing of what was to come, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host could not resist the urge to immediately slime President Trump as a criminal who will soon be in prison:
A refreshing dose of honesty coming from the mouth of a mainstream news anchor is an anomalous occurance to put it lightly. ABC’s Amy Robach provided just that when she was caught on camera discussing the network’s role in suppressing a story about Jeffrey Epstein Story. Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich appeared on Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the case in more detail and the shameful cover-up.
One would think viewers must be exhausted by the never-ending parade of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on the late night circuit. However, Stephen Colbert's liberal audience apparently does not feel the way, considering Tuesday’s Late Show featured Senator Amy Klobuchar.
Despite losing more and more traction in the polls with each passing day, Senator Kamala Harris continues to hit the liberal late-night circuit with frequency. Most recently, she appeared on Monday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers where she participated in a smear session against President Trump (the usual talk show fodder).
While a large majority of Americans celebrated the death of ISIS leader, Abu al-Baghdadi, certain members of the press were doing everything in their power to diminish the win for the country and the President. Included among those was Trevor Noah on Monday’s Daily Show with guest and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’ Rourke.
The true colors of leftist media figures never shine so bright as when they interview a Democratic politician. The incessant fawning and softball questions leave no doubt as to where their political allegiances lie. The latest example was Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live with guest Senator Bernie Sanders.
